Leaky Gut and Heart Problems
How does Leaky Gut create heart problems?
It’s been a long held belief that a little bit of wine is good for the body, but a significant study in 2014 says otherwise. After following 80,000 Swedish citizens over a ten year period and noting their drinking habits, this study indicates that even in moderation, alcohol may be hard on your heart. In fact, having as little as one or two alcoholic drinks each day may increase your risk for atrial fibrillation (Afib).
“The most common abnormal heart rhythm, Afib causes symptoms including lack of energy, dizziness, shortness of breath, heart palpitations and chest pain.”
The findings are worth noting for people with Afib as well as those without the condition, says cardiologist Bruce Wilkoff, MD (who did not take part in the study).
“What’s different about this study is that more modest amounts of alcohol intake seem to also correlate with developing atrial fibrillation,” Dr. Wilkoff says.
